New DARK SHADOWS Still Features Johnny Depp & Eva Green

Check out the brand new image of Johnny Depp sharing some screen time with the always gorgeous Eva Green. Also, screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith verifies that the film will be PG-13.

"It was a dream to work with Tim Burton. He made my character, Angelique Bouchard, a real human being. She's funny and witty with a black sense of humor. The movie takes place in the 17th century. I wear a corset and have blonde hair." - Eva Green (

In a recent interview with Bad Ass Digest Screenwriter, Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter) talks about the tone of Tim Burton's Dark Shadows.

"The tone of the movie is soap operatic. It's heightened. Everything is heightened and grand. Johnny is just dug in and big. [Starts hamming it up] 'Didn't you see? How... could you? My god, woman!'"

And what about that zany dark humor that Tim Burton is best known for, can we expect more of that in this film adaptation of the popular 1960's soap opera?

"There's an absurdist element to it. It's very funny. I don't think people are expecting it to be as funny as it is."

For the big reveal, the film will have more of a classic vampire feel to it than let's say "Twilight," but it won't be filled with too many frights.

"It's PG-13, so there's not gore, there are no hardcore scares, but there's some crazy Barnabas vampire shit in this movie that will surprise people in terms of its ferocity."

Thank you for the heads up Rowsdower.

Dark Shadows also stars Helena Bonham-Carter, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green, Chloe Moretz and Jackie Earle Haley and will be with us May 2012.

She's extremely beautiful on that

He(Depp) so boned her(Green). I'm optimistic about the movie, my dad's going crazy about it the dude absolutely loved the original tv show. and damn Eva Green looks fine.
Rowsdower - 2/12/2012, 10:35 AM
I was hoping for an R rating. Oh well.

Glad to hear about Depp's "ferocity" and "crazy Barnabas vampire shit."
darthbobtarkas - 2/12/2012, 10:42 AM
I don't have any faith in Seth whatsoever. The Abe Lincoln script was shitty as hell.
Really want this to be good as I'm a huge Burton fan. But my hope is dwindling.
kurekurcubic - 2/12/2012, 11:05 AM
oh yeahhhh...they [frick]ed.
Hellsing - 2/12/2012, 11:08 AM
@nailbiter I'm sorry I don't get why you want this to be R-rated and I am guessing you were fan of the TV show, I've only seen a couple of episodes, but some times the drama is so over the top I couldn't help but laugh my head off, plus there wasn't anything particularly frighting or scary about the show it was just delightfully [frick]ing weird and out there. Barnabus was a bad ass so hopefully depp doesn't [frick] it up

Hellsing - 2/12/2012, 11:10 AM
seriously WB are finding it difficult to promote this movie just play up the supernatural part and the fact that depp's playing a vampire should be enough to land some asses in the theatre. The guys more of a brand then an actor these days which is unfortunate since the guy does have talent.
marvel72 - 2/12/2012, 11:24 AM
wow! eva is so f*ckin hot.
TheSoulEater - 2/12/2012, 11:30 AM
This is making me think she'd be a good Emma Frost, anyone else? anyone?

HellsHammer - 2/12/2012, 11:43 AM
I love the original series and I want this to be amazing. Im really hoping there is a reason he is looking like that, maybe a need for blood or something, because Barnabas always came across as a normal guy, but if hes going to look like that the whole movie : Alice Cooper Lulz Gif - Alice Cooper Lulz

@ TheSoulEater

i agree 100% with you.
TheSoulEater - 2/12/2012, 11:53 AM

Thats what I was thinking too!
headlopper - 2/12/2012, 11:59 AM
I think she'd also be a great 'one-nighter', but that's just me.
Hellsing - 2/12/2012, 12:02 PM
@nailbitter totally get what your saying and yes alot of movies tend to go for PG 13 but if the movie doesn't require an R rated I see no reason for it to be. But yes a lot of shit does get diluted down to earn more money.
m73 - 2/12/2012, 12:13 PM
HB Carter ? In a TB film? NF way.
headlopper - 2/12/2012, 12:24 PM
...a rated "R" 'one-nighter'!
prettynuclear2 - 2/12/2012, 1:23 PM
now that it's pg-13 it could hurt the avenger's second weekend box office
bayouboyz - 2/12/2012, 2:36 PM
This is cool, but when are we going to get a trailer? All we have seen so far is some pictures. We don't even have an official poster yet.
Coraline - 2/12/2012, 2:41 PM
All you hardcore Dark Shadows fans need to lay back and try to enjoy it. And speaking of Eva, she looks great as a blond, her natural hair color BTW.
nowtheresaBATman - 2/12/2012, 2:55 PM
@Scorpion8125 watch "the Dreamers" you'll find the answer your looking for ;)
Coraline - 2/12/2012, 3:16 PM
According to the person on imdb that claims to have seen the trailer, at this point Barnabas says, "What did I ever see in you?" And then Angelique rips open her shirt to reveal her corseted bazooms.
Nick56 - 2/12/2012, 3:32 PM
^very nice.

speaking of a trailer, shouldnt we have gotten one by now?
patriautism - 2/12/2012, 3:37 PM
I prefer Eva's natural hair color..
But hey I'd take her any way she came..

I like Hathaway fine, but I really think Nolan lost out on not choosing her for Catwoman.
MBZ1993 - 2/12/2012, 4:10 PM
Did Depp smack it........or grabbed it?
MikeZ - 2/12/2012, 4:45 PM
@ TheSoulEater

Funny you mention that. Here's what I found @ Comic Book Resources:

Eva Green + blonde hair = EMMA FROST

She has:

A) A posh english accent - a must!
B) Big boobs
C) Can play a distant/mistress type very well
LAWLZY96 - 2/12/2012, 5:43 PM
Well its Tim Burton so I assume there well be lots of blacks on whites, spiderwebs, Danny Elfman, gothic spirals, and scenery porn.
ULTIMOSPIDER - 2/12/2012, 5:48 PM
i would massage her creamy hamstrings...with my MOUFF !!!
Coldblood6 - 2/13/2012, 2:40 AM
Lara Parker, who played Angelique was an extremely beautiful woman; Eva Green playing Angelique is an EPIC FAIL!
CherryBomb - 2/13/2012, 4:42 AM
Wow! Eva looks amazing with blonde hair! (: I approve!
rea1dea1stee1 - 2/13/2012, 7:30 AM
